T-shirt quilt

I finished this quilt this week. All the shirts belong to my daughter-by-marriage, Kati. She has enough left for 2 more about the same size- its just about twin sized. These were just the soccer shirts! Denim on the back with an all over swirl quilt design, dark yellow on the back and white on the front. It will be great for picnics and camping as its very sturdy. Had trouble with skipped stitches, tried using a ball point needle, a 14 and a 16 but it didn't really matter which I used, got the same result. Very frustrating :/
I did one for Chris a few years ago, when he graduated from college, but it disappeared at a soccer game, hopefully one day it will find its way back home.
Also finished quilting and sewing the binding on my blooming 9 patch but the handwork isn't done yet. Will post a pic when the binding is done.


  1. That's so cool! Good job! Hopefully one day I can make a soccer t-shirt blanket for Mike.

  2. You have been a busy girl! It looks great!

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Chris took a nap on the couch with it today, he loves it too. :) THANK YOU!!!!!
